Hillary and Kaine made their first appearance today. In the short video clip of their appearance, he doesn't seem boring at all. I kind of like him.

Ambassador Chris Stevens mother wrote the New York Times complaining about Trump and the Republicans' opportunistic exploitation of her son's death in Benghazi.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
